Chief Administrative Officer & General Counsel
Denny Cowger is currently the Chief Administrative Officer and General Counsel of OrthoLite VietNam, the world’s leading supplier of comfort insoles to shoe brands such as Nike, Adidas, ASICS, Clarks and New Balance. Denny has over 10 years of working experience in Vietnam, having been in private practice with the law firms of Mayer Brown JSM and then Duane Morris Vietnam LLC before coming into his current role for the last 5 years. During his time in Vietnam, Denny has been an active member of AmCham Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City), having participated on local events such as Paloozas and holiday get-togethers as well as regional activities such as Door-Knocks to reach out to members of Congress on behalf of Americans living overseas.
How I can be of value to AmCham
As part of my work in the shoe business, I travel around the region on a weekly basis representing the US and Vietnam in my interactions with my fellow global citizens. A lot of the work I do, helps to show the world all the good things that the US and Vietnam has to offer. If elected, I would be one of the most active AmCham Vietnam ambassadors to all the business and governmental leaders to come across.
Locally, I would like to become more involved in AmCham Vietnam through participation in committees. The two most relevant in my case would be the Manufacturing and Legal Committees where I can add value through my decade of experience in different sectors in Vietnam. Through my years with AmCham Vietnam, I have also had the opportunity to speak, host and organize co-hosted Chamber events. I would look forward to continuing to be part of such events.
Finally, in addition to being involved at the local level with AmCham, I also would like to be a bridge between other American Chambers of Commerce in this region and help to encourage collaboration among them. Helping to interact with other chambers not only would help strengthen Amcham Vietnam, but also help to give support and knowledge to the other chambers regionally.
